Supporting Care Workers Across The Country!

Avery has been a supporter of The Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) since its foundation in 2009 by promoting the charity at our events and continuously committing to helping care workers. Since Avery became the headline sponsor of the CWC’s Going The Extra Mile events in 2017, we have raised over £22,000 for the charity.

This year, we look forward to supporting their 2020 fundraising events, kicking off with the South Coast Cycle in May, before all of our homes come together to help fundraise for their headlining ‘Going The Extra Mile’ event in July.

Lisa Soper, Operations Director at Avery, said, “The Care Workers Charity provides some incredible support for people in the sector who are facing extreme hardship. Without their support and intervention during these difficult times, many families would face significant challenges. We are proud to support the CWC in their work.”

When speaking about Avery’s partnership with the CQC, Sarah Hyman, Head of Operations at the charity said: “It is amazing to see how Avery has embraced and driven Going the Extra Mile. Year after year, the company help to make it such an exciting event that champions the role of care workers and brings care staff and care recipients together. We are delighted that Avery is promoting the charity to their staff and a wider audience to ensure that together, we are supporting care workers better.”

More information about this years Going The Extra Mile event will be featured in later issues of the Welcome Home magazine.
